@FlairWoodworks: Time for #woodchat. Feel free to join in on Twitter! I’ll resume the project in one hour. #flairww

@FlairWoodworks: Good evening, #Woodchat!

@uppercutwood: Good evening everyone – welcome to woodchat! Tonight’s topic is Woodworker’s Safety Week #woodchat

@McPhersonDoug: Hello all #woodchat

@BillGriggs: Good evening. #woodchat

@kweinert: Evening all #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: Has everybody had a safe week in the shop? #woodchat

@woodshaver101: good evening #woodchat

@kweinert: Looking for suggestions. I have old delta table saw, stamped throat plate, no riving/guard. Suggest replaceable throat plate? #woodchat

@McPhersonDoug: In-laws visiting and kids baseball equals safety from no shop time #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @FlairWoodworks One Two Three…. Nine, Ten. Whew… all there. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @kweinert Sure, but a riving knife or splitter is more important, in my opinion. #woodchat

@kweinert: like to make zero clearance, use aftermarket riving things that I can’t recall name of right now. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @kweinert Microjig and Biesemeyer make an aftermarket splitter. There’s also the Bolt-On Riving Knife (BORK). #woodchat

@woodshaver101: @kweinert make your own and add a drill bit behind the kirf and there u have a spliter #woodchat

@CoolToolShed: Evening all! #woodchat #woodchat

@uppercutwood: I’d like to find a great pair of safety glasses, they are all so cheap and crappy. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: I have a nice aftermarket splitter with anti-kickback pawls for my PM 66. it snaps on and off, but doesn’t lower with blade #woodchat

@uppercutwood: So someday I will be upgrading to a safer saw – perhaps sawstop #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @uppercutwood The eye protection I wear is actually a pair of chemical splash goggles. Comfortable, protects against ricochets. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: It is compatible with my factory inserts and zero clearance inserts #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @FlairWoodworks are they good enough for impact resistance? #woodchat

@woodshaver101: @uppercutwood fast cap makes some decent safty glass’s i use the ones with the bifocal lens,not to bad. #woodchat

@kweinert: @FlairWoodworks clearly so – but plate is stamped steel, rubber washers under, screws in. that’s why different plate. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @uppercutwood Absolutely. Rated for it too. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: Speaking of riving knives, I just finished writing this post http://t.co/y4DdjIvU #SafetyWeek #woodchat

@kweinert: The MJ splitter is what I was thinking of. #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @uppercutwood I don’t use a table saw. I use a track saw. Better safety record. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @FlairWoodworks are they foggy, or even froggy? #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @kweinert I had a MJ splitter for my last saw. I wasn’t entirely happy with it. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Question: does anyone not know what safety week is? #woodchat

@malphrusoxide: @uppercutwood always check for z87 rating… should be on the lens or the inside of the frame. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @uppercutwood When wearing a poorly-fitted respirator, they can fog up. Otherwise, they’re fine. #woodchat

@woodshaver101: i’ve been running my saw with out a guard for 30 years,without incident,been bit by my shaper once. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @benjamenjohnson nice work! does it raise and lower? you might want to taper the front edge. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @uppercutwood These are what I wear: http://t.co/xLwJ0SvI #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @malphrusoxide Good info. Thanks! #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Great eyeprotection tip RT @malphrusoxide: always check for z87 rating… should be on the lens or the inside of the frame. #woodchat

@BillGriggs: Does anyone have a recommendation for a good dust mask or respirator? #woodchat

@malphrusoxide: @uppercutwood more info on z87 ansi standards if you are the technical reading type: http://t.co/C9X5zB14 #woodchat

@RichtheCarpnter: Hey everyone! #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @CoolToolShed evening. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @RichtheCarpnter Hi Rich. It’s Safety Week! #woodchat

@woodshaver101: @BillGriggs 3m are the best,i use the ones with the valve,and am happy #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @uppercutwood Yes, it raises and lowers with the blade. I slightly rounded the front edge, but I’ll keep that in mind #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @benjamenjohnson ok, i wanna know what that’s mounted on in your saw 😉 #woodchat

@RichtheCarpnter: I prefer the 3M double strap dust masks and 3M respirator for when I’m spraying lacquer #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @BillGriggs I use the Resp-O-Rater Jr. http://t.co/wITe2SOF #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @benjamenjohnson I’ve had some rare occasions where the wood almost catches the front edge. and the edge already tapers. #woodchat

@KALAstudios: what’s up all- go to be here even if it’s a little bit late #woodchat


@benjamenjohnson: @uppercutwood Best way to show is a picture BRB #woodchat

@woodshaver101: i think proper training on the different machines is the best ,way to avoid getting hurt,know the proper way to do things #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @woodshaver101 Absolutely. But how do you get proper training? #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: @FlairWoodworks For me it started in middle school and high school. Sadly these courses are few now. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: Who here has received some sort of formal woodworking training? #woodchat

@woodshaver101: @FlairWoodworks tech school, i learned on the job as an apprentice. #woodchat

@KALAstudios: I think shop saftey starts in your head- know what you are going to do- know the limitations on the tool and respect it’s power #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @KALAstudios But knowing the limitations of the tool means that you need to understand what it does and how it works. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @uppercutwood downloading picture, I said Trunnion in my post, I need to change that #woodchat

@uppercutwood: #woodchat My gift to you for Safety Week is my recreated Taunton Press Safety rules http://t.co/HCoatgBD true to original

@RichtheCarpnter: I keep spare sets of old safety glasses in the work van in case we forget our own. It’s better to have an old pair than none. #woodchat

@KALAstudios: @FlairWoodworks I had years with my Dad, but then attended the Australian School of Fine Furniture. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @KALAstudios And you have to learn that somehow. Without someone to guide you, it’s chicken and egg. #woodchat

@woodshaver101: @KALAstudios i agree,and when your tired its time to shut the shop down #woodchat

@woodshaver101: @FlairWoodworks thats what the owners manusl is for. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: Ha! Are you kidding? RT @woodshaver101: @FlairWoodworks thats what the owners manusl is for. #woodchat

@KALAstudios: @FlairWoodworks true- if you don’t know the tool then you have no business using it- Learn about it before you use it #woodchat

@uppercutwood: MT @KALAstudios: I think shop safety starts in ur head-know what u r going 2 do know the limitations of tool and respect its power #woodchat

@RichtheCarpnter: @FlairWoodworks I learned from others on the job but I wouldn’t consider it “formal” training. #woodchat

@malphrusoxide: @KALAstudios @FlairWoodworks i agree with the ideal, but that is far from what happens in reality. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @uppercutwood here’s how it’s mounted. #woodchat http://t.co/R3dwYWNF

@uppercutwood: A shoutout to @Woodwhisperer who started Safety Week 4 or 5 years ago. He wanted to be here but is handling attacks on his site. #woodchat

@KALAstudios: @woodshaver101 I agree-tonight I had tons I wanted to get down-but we just welcomed our 3rd son into the world last week- NO SLEEP #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @benjamenjohnson Looks good. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Very cool RT @benjamenjohnson: @uppercutwood here’s how its mounted. #woodchat http://t.co/2YLu2aOk #woodchat

@RichtheCarpnter: I learned a lot of lessons on my own (aka the hard way) but am still lucky to have all 10 fingers! #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @uppercutwood Another angle… I’ll have to add these to my post. #woodchat http://t.co/fAUsONSQ

@uppercutwood: @RichtheCarpnter I’ve thought of keeping a pair at each tool #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @uppercutwood Why not just wear ’em on your head? @RichtheCarpnter #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @KALAstudios Congrats Kaleo! What did you name him? So happy for your family. #woodchat

@woodshaver101: i also learned alot from watching video’s the one’s finewoodworking put out’ #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @FlairWoodworks habits, I guess. I take them off and set them down. I should just push them up on my head, or get a croakie #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: I think another key thing for safety is to use the right tool & technique for the job. Also keep all you cutting edges sharp. #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @KALAstudios Congratulations on the birth of your son. #woodchat

@KALAstudios: @uppercutwood We named him Ransom Kala- we call him Ran for short #woodchat

@uppercutwood: I’ve had 2 safety incidents with no injury. Power jointer kickback when it hit a knot & table saw kickback cutting draw bottoms. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @DJOfurnituremkr That should go without saying, but deserves to be said anyways. #woodchat

@malphrusoxide: @DJOfurnituremkr yeah, sharp knives/blades + proper adjustment go a long, long way. #woodchat

@RichtheCarpnter: I find newbies make a lot of simple hand tool mistakes that lead to injuries i.e. utility knife, starting screws with a drill etc #woodchat

@KALAstudios: @DJOfurnituremkr Totally agree- the right tool for the job is important. I will actually buy a tool to make sure it’s done safe #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: I most often hurt myself by setting something heavy down without taking my fingers out first. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: MT @DJOfurnituremkr: Use the right tool & technique for the job and keep all your cutting edges sharp. #woodchat

@CoolToolShed: @BillGriggs just watched a YouTube video in the Track Saw. Pretty interesting! Seems like a huge time saver! #woodchat

@woodshaver101: its also good practice to keep the machines tuned and square. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @woodshaver101 Yes! Machinery maintenance. Just like your car, tools need attention. #woodchat

@RichtheCarpnter: Ditto! RT I most often hurt myself by setting something heavy down without taking my fingers out first. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @FlairWoodworks I tend to lift things that I should get help with. Like my entire cast iron tablesaw top with iron wings attached. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @CoolToolShed Track saws are gaining a lot of popularity. @BillGriggs #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @CoolToolShed I really like my track saw. It is great for sheet goods and good for hardwoods. #woodchat

@woodshaver101: @FlairWoodworks mine are like violins #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Here’s my tip: don’t assume your tools are set right. I once set a jointer for heavy cut and forgot next time. Always check. #woodchat

@DJOfurnituremkr: I’m also against loud music in the shop or on the job site. Low to moderate volume only. To easy to lose focus otherwise. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @uppercutwood Matt, you’re a beast. (Yeah, I probably push my limits too.) #woodchat

@RichtheCarpnter: Loose clothes can cause trouble – no hoodie strings allowed!! #woodchat

@malphrusoxide: @woodshaver101 most evident? when TS blade isn’t square to miter slot or TS fence square isn’t square to blade… #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: Not as good for hardwood? RT @BillGriggs: I really like my track saw. It is great for sheet goods and good for hardwoods. #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @FlairWoodworks Yeah. There are tracksaws available from most major tool makers now. Hint: They are all good. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @DJOfurnituremkr I’m the opposite. I focus better with music. #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @RichtheCarpnter Rich. I have to watch that one. I never remember it. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @DJOfurnituremkr Agreed. Not too loud but I got to have music on. Keeps my energy up and helps me flow. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: Should we all wear spandex? RT @RichtheCarpnter: Loose clothes can cause trouble – no hoodie strings allowed!! #woodchat

@KALAstudios: @FlairWoodworks yeah I found that out tonight using my T55 on a 8/4 maple slab. Burn baby Burn… Still a great saw though #woodchat

@CoolToolShed: @BillGriggs @FlairWoodworks with limited space in my shop this may be a good purchase! #woodchat

@uppercutwood: A good circ saw, with good blade, and a good shop made edge guide is darn near as good as a tracksaw for much cheaper. #woodchat

@woodshaver101: @RichtheCarpnter I agree rich,even long sleeves. #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @FlairWoodworks No it is good for hardwood. I just hate arguing about the fact that the joints look good w/o a jointer. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @DJOfurnituremkr I listen on headphones and turn them off when I’m using power tools …and putt on muffs if necessary #woodchat

@KALAstudios: @FlairWoodworks you can wear spandex- just don’t send us any pics #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: But not all equal. RT @BillGriggs: Yeah. There are tracksaws available from most major tool makers now. Hint: They are all good. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @KALAstudios Love that name – Ransom. #woodchat

@malphrusoxide: @FlairWoodworks @RichtheCarpnter wait…does nobody else wear spandex in the shop? #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @KALAstudios Ooh. #woodchat

@woodshaver101: when i run my tools I listen to the cut,it will tell you if your off. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: On loose clothing, did anybody see Matthias (woodgears.ca) try and get a shirt caught in his table saw? He couldn’t. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @malphrusoxide I wear my shirts, cargo shorts, that’s it. no long sleeves, no collar, no apron. good shoes (brooks glycerin) #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @BillGriggs I’ve found that it depends on the type of cut. I’ve used the TS-75. #woodchat

@BobbyHagstrom: It’s just too easy to keep using a dulled sawblade. Having a spare waiting allows for an immediate solution. #woodchat


@benjamenjohnson: Good point! RT @woodshaver101: when i run my tools I listen to the cut,it will tell you if your off. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: Very cool. RT @uppercutwood: @KALAstudios Love that name – Ransom. #woodchat

@RichtheCarpnter: @benjamenjohnson I actually prefer headphones too but the cords are always F’n me up and become a distraction #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: Please don’t answer that. RT @malphrusoxide: @FlairWoodworks @RichtheCarpnter wait…does nobody else wear spandex in the shop? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @BobbyHagstrom One in the saw, one in the sharpening shop is a good idea. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @RichtheCarpnter I use bluetooth headphones, some of the best $30 I ever spent. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: Yes! Know when something sounds wrong. RT @woodshaver101: when i run my tools I listen to the cut,it will tell you if your off. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @benjamenjohnson Ears are a great safety device. Saved me with my PC690. I forgot about that. It almost took my balls (& femoral) #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: Sam Maloof was ready to go out to dinner and was wearing a loose shirt. It got caught in a machine and ripped off his back. #woodchat

@malphrusoxide: @BobbyHagstrom yep, and have a good relationship with your local sharpening guy. get your knives/blades back faster… #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: To this day, the shirt hangs from a column in his shop as a reminder. #woodchat

@RichtheCarpnter: Hahaha – um.. spandex would definitely cause static electricity and would definitely be unsafe! #woodchat

@uppercutwood: I threw that router away and bought the Bosch – it had great safety upgrades: switch on handle, slow spin up, vac attachment #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @BobbyHagstrom It’s always nice to have a spare sharp blade anyway! Just in case you do something stupid like bang the blade #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @uppercutwood Not that I know of. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: True? RT @RichtheCarpnter: Hahaha – um.. spandex would definitely cause static electricity and would definitely be unsafe! #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: I’m interested too. RT @RichtheCarpnter: @benjamenjohnson I’ll have to check them out. What brand? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: I could hear the router sounding “wrong” so I turned it off. The huge straight cutting bit was about to make me a eunuch #woodchat

@BobbyHagstrom: @benjamenjohnson I bought a Forrest blade now and I have a Freud as a backup while it gets sharpened. Haven’t damaged it yet… #woodchat

@pickettfurnitur: hi fellas! #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Any topics you’d like covered by bloggers during safety week? #woodchat

@BillGriggs: @FlairWoodworks Speaking of static electricity. Do you ground your dust collection system? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @pickettfurnitur Welcome! we’re talking shop safety. #woodchat

@RichtheCarpnter: I also always wear safety glasses when mixing finish and cleaning the spray guns. A little lacquer in the eye can really burn! #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @BillGriggs No. lots of debate but not necessary. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @RichtheCarpnter http://t.co/amKGFpzz (Motorola S305) OK I maybe I paid $40. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @uppercutwood The merits of spandex as a standard workshop aparell? Maybe a good one for @WoodWhisperer. #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @RichtheCarpnter I make sure the ventilation is crazy when I spray, & turn the furnace off so it doesn’t pull fumes into the house #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @BillGriggs Only what is grounded through though metal blast gates and wire in the hose. I have not taken extra steps. #woodchat

@pickettfurnitur: oh boy! i once received 9 stitches on my thumb when i was an apprentice. #woodchat

@RichtheCarpnter: @uppercutwood Yeah an off balance machine or broken cutter sounds weird and is a dead giveaway of a problem #woodchat

@KALAstudios: @pickettfurnitur what’s going in Red Hook tonight #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @pickettfurnitur details? #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @BobbyHagstrom Is the Forrest as as good as it’s price? I’ve had some pretty good luck with my Freud blades? #woodchat

@pickettfurnitur: buying a new vehicle tomorrow @KALAstudios my van died yesterday #woodchat

@uppercutwood: Sense of smell is a good safety device too. Finish fumes, burning wood, electrical problems… #woodchat

@KALAstudios: @pickettfurnitur Yeah I took a chisel right across my pointer finger- 8 stitches #woodchat

@RichtheCarpnter: @uppercutwood Good idea! #woodchat

@pickettfurnitur: @uppercutwood i had my left hand beyond the table saw blade, a board kicked back and brought ny hand with it #woodchat

@woodshaver101: any one been hurt in the shop,i sliced a finger on a shaper once,got in a hurry. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: My most frequent source of cuts is the edge of a piece of lumber, especially one just planed. #woodchat

@KALAstudios: @pickettfurnitur Aw man that sucks- I bought a van last year- almost right after visiting you and seeing how good it would be. #woodchat

@BobbyHagstrom: @benjamenjohnson I do like both, but I gotta admit that the glass-like surface I get with the Forrest on crosscuts is awesome. #woodchat

@pickettfurnitur: @uppercutwood total rookie mistake. luckily blade height happened to be set really low. could have been a lot worse #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @pickettfurnitur youch! how do you prevent it now? what has changed about your technique? #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @BobbyHagstrom I have a Freud crosscut blade that does an awesome job. @benjamenjohnson #woodchat

@uppercutwood: I like my Freud dedicated rip and dedicated crosscut. Now I just need two saws! #woodchat

@pickettfurnitur: @KALAstudios thinking about a pick up truck with backseat (for the kid) this time around. and scheduling big stuff to be delivered #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @uppercutwood A table saw with a table saw in the wing is a pretty sweet setup. Think about it! #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @woodshaver101 1/4″ straight bit, not for faint of heart http://t.co/oF9p4nuR #woodchat

@pickettfurnitur: @uppercutwood well I don’t put hand there anymore. and use magnetic guides to keep wood pressed against fence above blade #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @pickettfurnitur I have the 4 door chevy, I like it but the bed is short and I want a tonneau cover or cab for locking stuff up. #woodchat

@woodshaver101: @benjamenjohnson ouch! u only do that once #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @benjamenjohnson OW! #woodchat

@malphrusoxide: @FlairWoodworks @uppercutwood yeah…could get a third for dedicated dado while you’re at it. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: Me too! RT @uppercutwood: I like my Freud dedicated rip and dedicated crosscut. Now I just need two saws! #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @uppercutwood I have a B2200 and took out the passenger seat for lockable, dry storage. #woodchat

@RichtheCarpnter: Another issue for me is keeping the floor clear of small scraps which can slide out or trip you up as you move around the shop #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @RichtheCarpnter It’s all the small, non-exciting things that we’re guilty of, right? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @RichtheCarpnter and cords, and hoses, and dust, and rags, and pencils, and kids, and barbie jeep, and dog… 🙂 #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @uppercutwood Has anybody had a shop pet cause an accident? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: featherboards not only improve safety but cut quality and consistency #woodchat

@woodshaver101: @RichtheCarpnter i was taught early that a clean shop is a safe shop #woodchat

@BobbyHagstrom: I use the magswitch featherboards whenever I can to keep kickback at bay. I like the Grr-ripper puch block too. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: @uppercutwood @woodshaver101 I was lucky, it was a small bit. ripped the piece right out from under my hand Now I use a push block #woodchat

@pickettfurnitur: @Flairwoodworks we laid down grip tape (for skateboards) all around our machines where our foot placement is for better stability #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @FlairWoodworks besides crapping in the shop? no. #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: @BobbyHagstrom One downside of a sliding table saw is the non-magnetic sliding table with over-sized T-slots. #woodchat

@benjamenjohnson: Gotta go help with bedtime. Stay safe! #woodchat

@malphrusoxide: thanks to all the #woodchat fellas. good first time participating…getting some grub now. same time next week?

@RichtheCarpnter: @FlairWoodworks @uppercutwood My pet had an accident.

@Does that count? #woodchat

@FlairWoodworks: Yup! RT @malphrusoxide: thanks to all the #woodchat fellas. good first time participating…getting some grub now. same time next week?

@FlairWoodworks: Nope! RT @RichtheCarpnter: @FlairWoodworks @uppercutwood My pet had an accident. Does that count? #woodchat

@uppercutwood: @benjamenjohnson Goodnight, thanks for stopping by and sharing your safety stories. Great riving knife! #woodchat

@RichtheCarpnter: Agreed! RT @uppercutwood featherboards not only improve safety but cut quality and consistency #woodchat
